I turned 29 a number of years ago, but due to a strange temporal anomaly, have remained so ever since. :innocent:

I think it's because 29 still seems young because there's no three at the start.

I am 41, and usually end up being the oldest female in most games I have played. I don't mind being called "mom" by just about all the younger ones :)

I am glad to see that I am not going to be the "old coot" in the game which has often been my experince. Most games I am in the rest of my guild would refer to me as "the old man" even though I am only 35.

I was way off thinking average over 25.

21 myself.

Actually, the thing about averages is, even though the majority of people seem to be in the high teens/low 20s, all you 40/50 years olds chiming in will throw the average up a bit. An average over 25 can still be possible ... or at least maybe near 25. Plus I remember a lot more 20-somethings saying their age on the other thread.

My guess at the Mode may be wrong, the odds look to be 17-19 as being the most likely now. I was pretty solid on the Mean and the Average though. (at least at this time) One good point is the illiterate group of players - I know of at least one who is 7. They probably won't vote much.

cool...i want to teach high school science at the high school im at now, all i need is a bachelors of science to be considered and if i can ill be able to give my friends little brother all the hell he puts me through now lol (revenge!!!)...oh that and the stupidity of the people at my school is baffaling. (90% of the students in the school think they are "gangstas" and act like they are. im not over over exaggerating). my science teacher told us that one of his ninth graders thought that we lived underground and that the earth opens up to let the people into space. (ROFL!)

oh i have yet to take calculus, is it diffucult?

im going to ask my physics teacher if he has those movies, or do you know where i can get them at?

REI ONRYOU
04-01-2005, 18:21
Yes, the game requires smart tactical thinkng as opposed to button bashing and considering the perfect build that only wiser (and generally) older brains can manage.

NB: Not a stab at anyone. Don't you youngins' go flaming on me now.

And hopefully this summer the college will be supporting me with a job and i should be making about $3000 just working for the summer. And I always seem to come out as one of the youngest in most of the games I play.

And it does seem that theres not very many people under 15 that play GW so far.

Im 39, Hey all.
My son Cameron is 8.

I think peeps over say 19 or 20
tend to think they are a small
minority if they are playing a game.

We just went though something like
this at another game community I
spend time in. One day somebody
made a "How old are you?" post, to
our suprize most of the core members,
(people who keep the community goin)
were well over 20.

Most of us thought we were the sole
"oldie", turns out a lot of us had families,
resposible jobs, and like myself- several
owned thier own business.

Our Daughter, Taryn, is 14 months old and we have a bun in the oven. :P (a boy)

I have been gaming since the Diablo I days and have been in only 3 guilds since.
I am the oldest in our guild :confused: , but its all good.

My wife played Daiblo I and II and I have been trying to get her on GW as well. She says she is looking for a game similiar to Daiblo and I told her that GW is the answer. Shes not too sure about it now, but when she plays it and gets to know it, she will like it. I know her too well, lol. Then she may join the guild I am in. :P

And actually Lady Kingel is a mom too. She might just be the oldest female in GW as well as one of the coolest. I believe she said she is in her 50's.

Btw, age has NEVER been a problem i thought.
It's more about the fact how we "Communicate" with eachother and the maiture way we do so.
I don't feel an " Age " in a game..I feel a "Community " where everyone plays his role in, no matter what your age is, everyone is equel there.

Just turned 40, son 13 and daughter 10. They are the ones I have to fight with to get on the computer for the Beta weekends!

We're old and bold, and as the saying goes 'Youth is wasted on the young', at least with GW we won't get out of breath running up a hill!

I will be 50 years old in May. Been a player all my life (started with an Apple II 48k). I was and I am still in the game business..met a lot of interesting people like Richard Garriot (Ultima), Alexei Pajitnov (Tetris), Peter D Molyneux (Populous), Chris Roberts (Wing Commander), Roberta Williams (King's Quest), Jordan Mechner (Prince of Persia), Brett Sperry (Command and Conqer), the Sirotek Family (Wizardry, Rescue Raiders) and many others. Reviewed more than 15 000 games when I was an editor in a French game magazine.
Now will you believe me if I tell you that GW is the best online game?

Did the survey turn out this way because people at the age of 15-20 have the most time to spend on games/this game? If yes, than it's a total illusion. I barely have time to play GW every month, always those fuggin' tests and homeworks and chores... aww yeah, I nearly forgot, and offcourse the private life I have. Same my friends, so what's up wwith the 38%? I always thought people round 25 or 30 have the most time and biggest interests to play games/this game...

The world is up-side-down since I was born :D

<I have an idea for a new survey : How many gals play GW? or How many guys play as girls in GW?> heck! I really wanna know, plz
Who want's to know as well? [=> raise your hands, make photos and show 'em]

Being 50 is not so bad. You'll see: sleep less play more

Calculus is very easy for a few, not hard for some, very hard for most and quite impossible for the rest :bonk:
I very much recommend you learn some good study habits or better yet join a study group. Four heads are better than one and if you miss a day you'll have some people to copy from :buddies:

Hi All,

I'm 36 here on the 16th of Feb. This is the first topic I've had any pertinent information to post on as I just bought the pre-order pack a week ago and have only been reading about the game mostly here on this board. I look forward to my first BWE in Feb.

The average (if we take the last category as 60 years avg) is 25 years old and there are almost as many people >26 as there are <20.
And 27% (more than 1 in 4) is even older than 30!

So the whole idea of playing computer games is for teenagers is once again eliminated (very happy for me - I'm not strange for age 28, only 3 above par!! :))!

Careful what you wish for.....once 18 hits, time starts to go by quicker. You either get caught up in college or go out on your own into the world and it changes quite a bit, enjoy your years and make the best of them.

I'm 29 and will turn the big 3-0 later this year. I used to give my wife a hard time about being a year older than me but not anymore. Those old age jokes hit a little too close to home nowadays lol.

I try to take good care of myself, and I feel great, but it still blows my mind I'll be turning 30 soon. I hear age 40 is now the new 30 so I'll try to take a little comfort in that I suppose. ;)

Getting older has really made me take a serious look back at the life I've lived up to this point; I still believe the best is yet to come. My wife and I just had our first child, and we've been having a great time with that. Once our baby boy gets a bit older the "old man" will have to show him how it's done when it come to gaming.

Who would have thought my first post on this forum includes stating my age instead of sophisticated UBER-build i had just invented in the flash of pure genius.. :D

Anyway I am 29 - so definitely awfully closer to 3-0 line then 2-0 (which is not the end of the world of course ;) ) - and i am very much happy that GW pulls like a magnet so wide range of people (age factor including). This just confirms that this game RULES! even before it hit a shelf. Pure miracle really.. :thumbsup:

I really enjoy finding out about the people I play games with it makes the world seem so small.. I hope to see alot of you when the game comes out... I know alot of you probably won't be able to buy the game for a while being kids and all... I remember being a kid, and having to ask my mom for money all the time :) it sucks I know.... Well I guess I should start a Guild for all of the over 20 group :) would be nice to play a game with people around my age, and not be hastled by a 13 year old kid that thinks he owns the world :) (for all you 13 year old kids out there grow up) LOL..

I've got a friend that I met playing WC3 who's the same age as I am and he's interested in playing this game as well. That is if his computer runs guild wars. Thing is he probably plans on making a guild of his own, since he's the leader of our clan in WC3. If he doesn't...I personaly would love to join your clan if you can seriously keep out the lil kids and if it's okay with you. :D Man, nothing bugged me more on D2 when some kid with his mom's credit card and the Ith's to show for it called me a n00b cuz I don't use map hack. :confused:

In-game Name: Tribo Tukmolytes
Age: 30 (this coming July)
Sex: Male (I sure am)
Location: Manila, Philippines

Graduated Bachelors of Science in Computer Science way back in 1997 :) I always say "I'm too old for this SH*T" but still I love online RPG games. I played Diablo, Diablo II, Lord of Destruction, Warcraft III (Call me Blizzard Dork). :happy05:

I've only played D2 LoD before GW, well thats the only other online one. And that was thanks to my fiance' getting me into it... our phone bills sure went down once I found I liked it though. :-D
(Rarely bothered with public games though... for same reason as I often turn off local chat. lol)
